I have 5 kids and with all of their homework, dinner, activities, showers, etc, we find it hard toRead More fit it all in. They have tons of homework and then it's hard to fall asleep immediately afterwards. I definitely think these kids shouldn't be starting school at 7:15 a.m.
Brian Howell June 11, 2014 at 10:52 pm
Research upon research backs this doctor up. Teens' body clock naturally move later (staying upRead More later and getting up later.) 7:15 start times are foolish and work AGAINST good learning. Elementary school starts at 9:15! It should be the opposite. Little kids pop out of bed bright and early. Teens? Not so much. That's biology.
Wendy June 15, 2014 at 10:40 am
I agree with the Doctor. Too many kids have extra curricular activities on top of doing homework,Read More eating, showering etc. High school start time is a bit too early for these kids.

Because we need more state control of local schools?

This is ridiculous. Go to bed earlier. 6:30 a.m. is not the middle of the night. Get up. Teens willRead More just stay up later - they'll sleep past noon if given a chance.
Louanne June 12, 2014 at 09:27 pm
Parents need to step up and regulate bed time. Most kids stay up way too late, are playing videoRead More games, using social media, tablets, smart phones, etc. This all makes it harder for the child to fall asleep at a decent time to get the a good amount of sleep. Kids would stay up all night if given the chance. Then they get up and have a sluggish start to their day. Doctor, I get your point, but it all begins at home and the parents need to be there to parent. Its not the school's fault.

We have to make people aware that our State is run by public employee Unions and we need court casesRead More like today which ruled that the California Teacher Tenure rules are unconstitutional so that we can change laws and vote people out of office who do not represent the interests of the public who pay the taxes.

Something that is interesting to note is that high school grads are going to four year universitiesRead More and studying subject that isn't marketable. While on the other hand you have people getting vocational training at vocational schools that essentially guarantees them a job out of school that will make them 'x' amount of money. So it isn't that college degrees are worthless, some are. It is also said that sometimes trade school is the right choice!

I couldn't help but to do some comparison between Stevenson and DHS as a resident in Deerfield,Read More since district has put up the news on the website. Operational spending per student is $16,839 in Stevenson and $20,821 in DHS. STEM ranking, #37 for Stevenson and #145 for DHS. I have been very disappointed in science teaching in DHS. Now I believe that there is some truth in the rankings.

I don't think magnet schools should be included. All the other schools have to take all students inRead More their district, magnet schools can pick and choose best students.

COMMON CORE IS UN AGENDA 21 Common Core is an integral part of UN Agenda 21/SustainableRead More Development: globalization is the standardization of systems. Whether the system is law enforcement or land use or government, the standardization, harmonization, and integration of all international methods of management is essential for total control. Education is the flash point for embedding system acceptance in all sectors of the population. Standardized propaganda is developed for pre-kindergarten to post graduate school; this is what is meant by 'Life Long Learning.' Breaking down traditional methods of learning in order to re-socialize the populace is the goal. Obedient, dependent people who are constantly being propagandized will provide the 'human capital' to fully implement UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development. Regardless of the content of this nationalized and internationalized system of behavioral modification, the goal and outcome will be to fundamentally destroy the individual's rights. - See more at: http://www.democratsagainstunagenda21.com/common-core-is-agenda-21.html#sthash.Rmsuw5zP.dpuf

It would do more good for the teachers and the kids to put that money into air conditioning theRead More schools that need it, or removing the asbestos from the old schools so it doesn't get the kids nor the staff sick.

I think District 95 should keep the money in a special fund. From time to time, in any schoolRead More district, events come up that can't be readily funded. It would be a 'plus' to be able to have ready cash. Or fund scholarships! There's not a family in District 95 that couldn't use some help with college.

If there's an excess of funds, why the tax increase? Being retired in this town, it is becomingRead More impossible to survive financially. If they want to give it back, I for one, after paying into the schools for 20+ years, will be happy to have some given back.

I believe it should be the parents that keep an eye on things. It's their responsibility and ifRead More they can't do it, there's a problem. That is over stepping. Part of the nanny state mentality.
Lead Follow or Get Out of the Way November 3, 2013 at 12:51 pm
Agree 100% JE. As a society we've abdicated more and more personal freedoms to the government andRead More schools, simply because it is too difficult or cumbersome to be responsible for ourselves and our family. It's a slippery, slippery slope, and when we crack open the door by saying "well it's OK as long as it's for their own good." The next thing you know they're listening in on all conversations and that third party is deciding what is good and not good for us, and turning us in for a little talking to by the authorities.

Common Core is really just kicking in this year. I'm predicting worse results after this year.Read More People really need to start educating themselves on Common Core. Recommended sites stopcommoncore.org or truthinamericaneducation.com. BTW, Common Core prepares kids for 2 year COMMUNITY COLLEGE Not a 4 YEAR! Which is fine if that's what you're expecting. With Common Core ALL schools will be on the same level. No longer will people move to certain areas for the schools. This will effect real estate values as well as ruining our kids.
